When Mark Stoneman punched the ball through the offside against Nottinghamshire last September, he not only sealed the 2013 LV=County Championship title but also added another boundary to a prolific campaign.

Three centuries and six fifties helped Stoneman pass 1,000 first class runs for the first time in his career, as the Newcastle-born star enjoyed a year to savour.

An attacking, fearless opening batsman, Stoneman penned a new contract in January which will keep him at Emirates Durham ICG until the end of 2016. He was also named Durham's new limited overs captain in April as a reward for his fine performances in all formats of the game.

Stoneman is a graduate of the Durham academy system and has modelled his game on Michael Di Venuto, who helped to mentor the left hander during the Australian's stay at the club.
